The Phantom Menace: Queen Amidala Royal Makeup: Part – 2

Queen Amidala, and other queens of Naboo, have some very recognizable makeup, this post is about Queen Amidala’s makeup, which, while having similar makeup, other Queen’s of Neboo have slightly different makeup and will not be featured in this Amidala specific post. 

These are good videos the show the application technique for the Queen Amidala makeup.

(Note: That the makeup technique for applying is helpful, however, it it not movie accurate.)

(Note: These may also help with the application of makeup for other Queens from Naboo, however, other Queens of Naboo’s royal makeup is not the same as Amidala’s even though it is similar so there will be some differences.)

 

Makeup Application To Avoid For Movie Accurate Makeup:

  • Winged Eyeliner
  • Eye Shadow (of any kind, other then white for setting powder)
  • Tight Lining Or Lining The Water Line
  • Colors Other Then White For The Setting Powder
    • (Note: using setting powder other then true no color or if you can’t get that white will change the color of the cream base)
  • Forgetting To Use Red Setting Powder For The Lips And Dots, which can result in smearing
  • Colors Other Than White For The Base
    • (Note: the makeup used in the movie was a porciline white, it is a warmer softer white not as harsh as clown white.)
    • (When its suggest that colors other then white should not be used, this means that even the lightest shade of regular foundation is not going to be light enough for Queen Amidala’s face base makeup, the makeup used in the film was a specific movie foundation.)

  • Use brown/black instead of true black may help keep the dark color without having a harsh line. 
  • RCMA has a no color powder that may be helpful for setting the base face makeup without changing the color and without using a white powder which may also change the color a little.

The Phantom Menace: Queen Amidala Royal Makeup Part – 1

Queen Amidala’s Royal Naboo Makeup, though similar to other queens of Naboo, is unique to her. This is a breakdown of the approximation of Amidala’s makeup placement and techniques. We will be looking at both Padme and Sabe wearing the makeup because Sabe is wearing the Amidala makeup as her decoy. Colors and brands will be covered more in part – 2 of this post.

Breakdown:

Face Base:

Queen Amidala’s white face makeup is cream makeup base from RCMA. This was made special for the Star Wars movies by the company. An important note about this makeup is that though it is called Porcelain, other makeup’s with that name are not the same shade. In this case it means that it is a specific shade of white with a warm under tone to it which was special made for the Star Wars’s movies. The white base covers the entire face and is lightly applied over the ears and down the neck. Note that the white base is blended more with the skin on the ears and neck so make a less harsh white color.

 

Eyes & Eyebrows:

the royal Amidala makeup has a eyeliner and masquara as well, both are applied lightly, the liner applied above and blew the lashes, not at all on the water lines. The liner is also slightly smudgy so it is not a harsh line.

The eyebrows are filled in too lightly, the brow is filled in naturally, not over drawn, but simply to make a darker more dramatic line.

(Amidala eyebrows filled in, natural shape)

The image of Amidala in the makeup chair is very nice because it shows not only the application of the brow liner, but also shows the lid clearly, though this is in the middle of the makeup so we cannot know for sure, it is a good bet that only setting powder is applied to the lids, no real color. We do think that maybe it’s a white or pearl white possibly, however, a no color setting powder would also do very well.

Cheek Dots:

The cheek dots are the same color as the lips, which in this case is Nars Fire Down Red.

Looking at the placement of the cheek dots we can see that the center of the dots lines up roughly under the outer edge of the iris ring.

The outer edge of the cheek dots line up roughly with the outer corner of the eye.

(Center of cheek dots line up with center tip of nose)

The cheek dots center are roughly in line with the tip of Padme’s nose, as you can see in the images below for both Padme and Sabe the lines below and above the dots are more or less in line with the tip of their noses. amidala makeup 11

Lips:

The lips are the same color as the cheek dots, the top lip in filled in naturally with no over drawing. the bottom lip is filled in white with the face base with a small rectangle of the red lip color in the center of the lip. This lower stripe of lip color is squared at the bottom, though some pictures show a slightly more pointed angle to it bottom lip, the majority of the images show it to be square. This lower lip stripe is also roughly the width of the philtrum.

By now, you’ve probably seen the trailer for the latest Star Wars installment, The Force Awakens. If you’re like me, you’ve already bought your tickets (come on, December 18!) But even a casual observer of the Star Wars phenomenon is probably at least a little bit curious about the massive film’s newest star, 23-year-old British actress Daisy Ridley. She plays the lead role of Rey, a droid scrapper living on the desert planet Jakku. “When we find Rey, she’s covered in grease and dirt. She’s been living alone for a long time,” says Amanda Knight, the film’s makeup-department head. “She’s dirty because she was scavenging parts from spaceships, so she had to really look like she’s hard-core and gets into fights. This girl kicks ass.” Here’s how Knight, hair designer Lisa Tomblin, and their teams brought Rey to life.

Minimal makeup. What does a droid scrapper wear for an even complexion that’s not trying too hard?Tom Ford. His Traceless Foundation is sheer and just a little glow-y. Knight flicked a few freckles on top with brown cream pigment. Knight added subtle warmth to Ridley’s cheeks with By Terry Brightening CC Lumi-Serum in Sunny Flash. “It’s very sheer, so it gives you a real sun-kissed look and the tiniest amount of contour,” she says.

Desert sands. Knight got down and dirty by tapping brown M.A.C. and Skin Illustrator pigments all over Ridley’s skin. But she also used actual dirt—or rather sand. “We took sand from the desert where we were filming and boiled it in water to sterilize it,” she says. “Then we’d stick it on Daisy’s face before each take. But it didn’t really matter. When she was filming fight scenes, she was facedown in the sand anyway. And there was nothing sterile about that at all. Poor Daisy really went through it.”

Her eyes. Ridley’s eyes were smoked out just a little bit (“J. J. [Abrams, the film’s director] didn’t want too much,” says Knight) with a dark-brown liner from Bobbi Brown that she smudged and smudged. She applied a taupe shadow just in the crease, then coated her lashes with Kanebo Sensai 38C mascara, an intense formula that locks onto lashes until it’s removed with superhot water (hence the name, or about 100 degrees Fahrenheit). “We didn’t want her looking like she had full mascara on. The Kanebo mascara has a tiny little brush; it worked well and didn’t smudge. We put it at the root and didn’t brush it all the way through,” she says.

The new buns. Rey wears her hair in three segmented buns (or “knobs,” as Tomblin calls them) throughout the film. “I tried to think of a style that was cool, practical, and different—and not so fussy,” says Tomblin. And of course, “it’s a nod to Princess Leia,” she says. To secure each knot, Tomblin chose a piece of brown wool. “It’s rustic, like something she’d find in the desert.”

Serious sun protection. On the Abu Dhabi desert set, sun protection was a top priority. (See? Even Jedis wear sunscreen!) “We took it very seriously,” says Knight. “In the morning, we’d apply SPF 50+ under Daisy’s makeup.” Knight also discovered a Banana Boat mist available locally. “We’d apply it to her face every hour. It didn’t mess up the makeup, and it wasn’t too shiny. As soon as the take was over, we’d duck under umbrellas. Not only was it over 100 degrees, but the reflection off the sand was brutal.”

Attack of the Clones: Purple Senate/Loyalist Committee PadmĂ© Makeup

Like with all Lucas era media, the makeup in Star Wars follows two trends, the makeup styles of the time period the film was made in and a more neutral palette. Most of Padmé makeup from the Attack of the Clones is very neutral and mostly consists of light brown tones, and dusky pinks.

This look is the approximation from photos of PadmĂ©’s Loyalist Committee/Purple Senate dress makeup.

Foundation:

Padmé’s foundation is natural looking, Padmé’s makeup should not be over done or leave her looking artificial. Any liquid foundation with a powder over top matched to your skin should work well. (Note: that other forms of foundation will also work, as long as they leave the skin looking natural.)

Eye-Shadow:

For this look Padmé wears a dark ashy taupe color on the back of her eye lid that is winged out and up a little past the edge of the eye-socked. Above the lid on the brown bone, as well as in the tear bucket/inner corner of the eye Padmé has a light, possibly white, highly.

Eyeliner/Mascara:

Padmé does not wear eyeliner with this look; instead some of the dark ashy taupe color that is winged on her upper lid is applied to the lower lid under her lash line. Padmé also appears to be wearing mascara, (Note: that noticeably false lashes are not used in this look.)

(AOTC: Padmé: No Eyeliner)

Blush:

Padmé’s blush is a pinky brown or pinky nude color, it is applied to the cheek bones, starting from the bottom of the temple and extending down to the apple of her cheek. The blush is also applied a little below her cheek bones in a downward angle, onto the flat of her cheek.

Attack of the Clones: PadmĂ© Battle Arena Makeup

Lucas era Star Wars makeup tends to follow the trends of the time the movie was made as well as take the approach of a more neutral and subdued color palette. This look, like many that Padmé wears in [Attack of the Clones,] has a very natural look, with little to no color outside of the lipsticks.

(Note: This is the approximation from analogizing the photos of Padmé makeup, all of these suggestions should be plaid around with to fit each Padmé perfectly.)

Foundation:

Natural looking foundation, any foundation with a setting powder should work well, plus some concealer to give a finished look. It is very natural looking which is the key to most Star Wars makeup, (Padmé does not have any contouring in this look.) For the purposes of movie magic there are likely high-lights and low-lights that are not important to cover here.

Eye-Shadow:

As far as eye-shadow goes Padmé wears a warm light taupe brown only on the back of her upper eyelid.

padme Battle arena eyeshadow 2
(Attack of the Clones: Battle Arena Padmé: Warm Light Taupe Brown)
padme Battle arena eyeshadow1
(Attack of the Clones: Battle Arena Padmé: Light Taupe Eye-Shadow)

There is a very light ashy taupe color, this color is only applied to the back of the lid; there is no color on the crease and brow bone, [no smoky eye]. (Note: occasionally the taupe color appears to be blended and winged out a very little past the outer corner of the eye. It is possible that there is a second lighter sandy-brown color that is almost undetectable on the eyelids outer corner and into the crease.)

Eyeliner/Lashes:

It does not appear that Padmé wears any eyeliner on her lower lid or water line, she may be wearing either a black or brown eyeliner on her upper lid just above her lash line, but it is almost undetectable and covered mostly by the mascara. You may consider skipping eyeliner and just go heavy on the mascara near the base of the lashes. She also appears to be wearing mascara, [but noticeably false lashes do not appear to have been used].

Blush:

PadmĂ©’s wears a pinky nude blush, and the application is very light and almost hard to see. The blush is applied to the apples of the cheeks and along in a narrow oval up to the cheek bone.

A New Hope: Leia’s Makeup

All Lucas era Star Wars movie makeup generally follows two trends, it is semi reflective on current trends (in the time period that the film is made) and it is more or less in the natural/neutral rang.

Below are the approximations of what Leia’s makeup was like in A New Hope, from analysis of the photos. These are the basics of Leia’s makeup and can certainly be plaid around with to get the perfect look for each individual Leia. This is a general guide line for movie accurate Leia makeup colors and application. (Note: Leia wears the same makeup throughout the entirety of A New Hope.)

(Note: Leia’s makeup is done using 1970’s makeup techniques so applying it will be a little different then most people may be used to.) Links at the bottom.

Leia’s Foundation:

Leia’s foundation is done in a very natural way, and any average well color matched foundation with a setting powder over top should work well, if needed use a little concealer. The key here is to keep it light and as natural looking as possible.

It is also relevant to mention that there are most likely high-lights and low-lights added to the makeup for the purposes of movie magic which aren’t important to cover for the average Leia. (Note: Leia does not have any significant contouring in her makeup.)

Leia’s Eye-shadow:

Leia’s eye-shadow is more or less blush-pink, the shadow is only applied to the back of the lid up to the socket and eye crease. (no smoky eye for Leia).

(Note: the color of Leia’s eye shadow is blush pink but the shade is an acid pink color in the movie, however, other tones may have be to plaid around with for each individual Leia’s makeup.)

(Note: According to Vintage Makeup Guide in 1978 “The new trick – think of your cheek colour as an eye colour.”)

(Classic Leia: Blush Pink Eye-Shadow)
end leia 2.1
(End Leia: Blush Pink Eye-Shadow)

Above the eye crease and below the eye-brow there appears to be a light taupe color on the brow bone.

(The brown/taupe eye-shadow tone is a dusty and warm color in shade and tone, again like with all of Leia’s makeup the colors that are used in the movies may not work well for every Leia, and there may have to be some adjustment in color and tone for each individual Leia.)

The lighter line that sometimes appears above the black eye-liner on Leia’s makeup is most likely caused by the edge of the black eye-line blending slightly with the eye-shadow. (From applying the makeup it seems this is the most likely reason for this appearance in the makeup sometimes.)

(However, white eyeliner was sometimes used in the 1970’s. “White eyeliner worn directly behind black…” ~ Hair & Makeup Artist Handbook) however, this dose not appear to be the case in Leia’s makeup it is important to understand makeup trends from the time period in which the movies where made.)

(Classic Leia: Taupe Eye-Shadow)
end leia 2.3
(End Leia: Taupe Eye-Shadow)
  • A powder eye-shadow for both is most likely, however, creams where also used in the 1970’s.

Leia’s Eyeliner:

The eyeliner that Leia wears appears to be black, though brown would also work; a very, very thin line of eyeliner is applied to the top lid, that is later almost completely covered by mascara. Below the lower lashes a thin line of eyeliner is applied under the eyelashes, (Note: eyeliner is not on the water line, but below the lashes). The liner does not extend all the way to the tear duct, but instead stopped close to 2/3rd of the way to the duct.

(Note: Leia’s eyeliner dose not have a wing or anything fancy, it is simple eyeliner that runs along the lashes both above and below.)

(Note: The light or white color that may appear on Leia’s eyelid could be white eyeliner. “White eyeliner worn directly behind black…” ~ Hair & Makeup Artist Handbook)

(Note: Black mascara is worn on the lashes, which are natural look lashes, nothing special or extra.)

Leia Makeup 5.6
(Classic Leia: Eyeliner)
end leia 2.4
(End Leia: Eyeliner)
  • An eyeliner pencil is most likely, (liquid eyeliner is general glossy and would not be as accurate.)

Leia’s Blush:

Leia’s blush is close to, if not the same color as, her eye-shadow, the blush is applied to the entire apple of the cheek. In one large oval section from the cheek bone to the apple of the cheek, keeping at least two finger widths away from the mouth.

(Note: According to Vintage Makeup Guide in 1978 “The new trick – think of your cheek colour as an eye colour.”) this may explain why Leia’s eyeshadow and blush are similar in color.

end leia 2.6
(End Leia: Blush Pink Blush)
  • Powder blush, though cream was also used at the time

Leia’s Lipstick:

A ruby pink lipstick with a slight gloss to it, the line follows the natural outline of the lip, overdrawing the lips was not done for Leia’s makeup.

  • Regular semi gloss lipstick in the right color,

Or

  • A non glossy lipstick in the right color with a clear gloss over the top
